The decision to use the roof tile on the façade allowed the architects to hide some technical elements of the build, such as the guttering, and, at the same time, to create a stunning effect that blends tradition and modernity.
One gable end is fully glazed, giving the building its unique form and creating a new sense of space internally. The living spaces are open plan, there are no clearly defined boundaries between the garden and the indoor space, heightening the sense of living at one with nature. Of course, the views of the surrounding vineyards and the Black Forest add to this impression.
The red roof tiles and their technical properties were the perfect material for this project, which was completed within 16 months, and which successfully incorporates modern architecture and an appropriate sense of proximity to nature.
